Bffllv Nebraskaa Sumests Christmas Gifts For All From Nine To Ninety To Brighten Season state educators begin to choose up sides for the impending argument Nebraska high school administrators sug gested in late November elimination of specific requirements for University entrance. They urged that 15 "satisfactory units" of hifh school work be retarded as the only requirement for college entrance. First blow struck in the educational argument came from leading faculty members of the Uni versity's College of Arts and Sciences. They called the reflections of the resolution "unrealistic and perilous to sound education." On their side, the University Arts and Sciences heads are arguing for retention of the English, foreign languages, mathematics, and physical science requirements for college entrance. Main contention of the state school administrators is that the 15 units of "satisfactory" work will bet ter enable the student to follow his chosen work and will facilitate education of those students who do not go on to college. The units of work may be obtained in such fields as wood working, military drill and athletics. Nineteen Arts and Sciences executive com mittee members and department chairmen have gene en record as opposed to the sugges tion from the Nebraska Education association. A committee within the NEA Is studying the problem. From comments heard from both sides, the problem has been a thorn In the side of educators, both high school and University, for many years. Perhaps the NEA's opinion that the require ment of certain "cultural" subjects for high school students, although preparing a few to go on to college, Is seriously impairing the education 01 people to know a trade. For the fortunate few, college provides this opportunity. But for stu dents who cannot attend college, high school i the only chance they may come in contact with English study, foreign languages, social studies, and other subjects which seem unimportant as far as high-school educated persons are concerned, to the state school administrators. Within our ever-widening horizon of changing social, political, religious, economic and moral views, man is becoming more and more short sighted in his vision. We are specializing and specializing. We are saying more and more that a man, a student from our point of view, should learn his trade and not clutter up his mind with unrelated subjects and the theories of the rest of the world. The subjects set up by the University as entrance requirements have been subjected to a long and valid test. They have stood for many years and have proved satisfactory, as far as possible, as a basis for a student going on to higher and more effective learning. These high school requirements were undoubtedly set up because they were necessary to a student enter ing college and undoubtedly because they were just as essential to the knowledge of students not continuing their education. Perhaps more consideration could be made for those students who dont ever plan to enter col lege. Their education could be directed more specifically along the lines of their vocation. But not to the extent which the NEA is suggesting. Not to the extent of abolishing the entrance re quirements and allowing 15 units of "satisfactory" work allow a Nebraska high school student to the many students in rural schools, specifically, enter the University. who wfll go right to work at some specific trade A definite problem exists here. One that must upon high school graduation, has some validity, be worked out and compromised between NEA The educators surely have the interests of stu- and the University. But the final decision must dents in mind. not, in any way, relax our educational standards - and requirements. Nebraska must not let its But in this case, it seems that the NEA isn't national educational level sink. Nebraska's New Senator Tom Rische Speculation as to the identity of the man who year-old former state senator was secretary to will represent Nebraska in the United States Sen- Kansas Gov. Alfred M. Land on during his 1936 ate for the next year was ended Monday. presidential campaign. He served " as Nebraska Fred A. Seaton, publisher of the Hastings manager for the 1948 presidential campaign of Tribune, was named by Gov. Val Peterson to fill Harold E. Stassen. Although he has been a resi de spot left vacant by the death of Sen. Kenneth dent of Nebraska only a comparatively few years, S. Wherry. At the same time, Seaton announced he has been quite active in state affairs, that he would not seek election to the post in - 1952. This leaves the race for the seat in 1952 In announcing the appointment, the governor wide open. Gov. "Dwight Griswold is reported to said that since Seaton will not seek re-election, be considering making the race, as is Gov. Val "he will be free from the political compulsion tw i-tfhrm&h Potowm lias already filed for which those who make politics a career must fh Rfiat new held by Sen. Hugh Butler, he still face." Another angle to this situation is the fact that Peterson or any other republican wui oe free to seek the post in 1952. In other words, Seaton will be a "caretaker" senator. We nope that Peterson win choose to ran against Senator Butler for the six year term next year. Senator Butler has outlived his use fulness to Nebraska, and could well be replaced by a man such as Peterson. Should Griswold run for the short term, he would probably win the nomination easily unless Peterson decides to run. The governor said he win announce his decision within two or three day. The political scramble is just beginning. Men Rate Neckties ! By BEN LARSON Staff Writer When women start paying at tention to those parts of a store .vhich display everything from otton shorts with pictures of Santa Claus on them to the new 'wrap-around" bath towels for men, men start playing coy. "Aw, I dont want anything this year," they always say. Un accustomed as they are to be ing on the receiving end of present-time, most men have some inner desire concerning gifts, which they bide from everyone. The result? .More neckties. In an effort to help the ladies this year, men were questioned on what they would like most to re ceive if they were to get a gift costing under $20. The answers were as varied as the subjects. "Boy! Just give me the twenty bucks!" was almost a standard answer. One little man sheepishly con fessed, "You know I never drink, but I'd really like to have about three fifths of good whiskey." Naturally, he preferred to re main anonymous. Another declared he wanted a hand-painted shirt "with girls on it." His friend wanted a new golf club he had spotted. One young man questioned had a generous approach. "I'd like a big night out with my girl," he blushingly replied. Then there was the man wne wanted $20 worth of socks that he. not his wife, picked out. "Something wild," he added, apparently tired of the conserva tive type which matched the rest of his attire. A bald-headed man laughingly requested a toupee if you can get them at that price." Apparently no one though, tooic the questioning too seriously. As usual, the men were enjoying giv ing out with a bad time. The result? Neckties! could change bis filing for the two-year term. Asked what he regarded the major prob lems facing the nation today. Seaton replied Td say they are all tied up In the Inefficiency, fnemptness and immorality of the present po litical administration." It is to be hoped that the senator's program win he a little more con structive than this statement Indicates. In it self the statement says little, except that Seaton is opposed to the administration. Generally, however, Seaton brings to the sen ate a record which Is above reproach.
